I live in an area where I can get plants, but there is not a lot of choice when it comes to items like bird baths, stepping stones, bird houses and other "decor" items. Does anyone know of a reasonably priced mail order firm with a catalogue where I can order such items? Thanks for your help!

Judy, I haven't seen a catalog specifically for decor items, but my Vesey's catalog has some decor items in it. You can order a free one from their website at www.veseys.com Keep your eye open for a decor catalog, I am sure there must be one out there. Hope that helps.

Pick up any gardening magazine....but I would suggest a C'dn one.....Look in the back of it and they always have "resource lists".

There will be names of companies who offer garden decor items that you can contact for a catalogue...Check it out next time you're waiting in line at the grocery store...

Try looking at some of the links in the Garden Furniture/Garden Accessories category on the Sites page on this site (fifth category from the bottom on the left side...)Some of the sites are Canadian, others are American or British. (Hortus Ornamenti, for example, is British but I've seen several garden centers here in Ontario carrying their products....) 'Reasonably priced' appears to be a more difficlt issue!:)

Hi Judy, As someone who likes to collect "garden decor items", I know a few places and have some suggestions for some reasonably priced pieces. Where abouts in the world do you live so I can let you know if there's any in your area Deb

Have you shopped EBay? Really cool stuff under gardening and fun to bid. Try it!

What about cheap or free (homemade) garden stuff? It doesn't have to look tacky -- homemade crafts & salvaged items can be the best... reflecting your own personal style! I've fixed up things I've gotten from our local dump (a benefit of rural residency!) and have seen wonderfully imaginative stuff in other peoples' yards. There's a forum just for "Garden Junk" on the GardenWeb forum that provides lots of ideas.

Judy, how far from the Soo? They have a White Rose store there? They're starting to put out their gardening stuff now so check it out. Even from time to time, Walmart & Canadian Tire have neat stuff too! (even Home Hardware has great stuff too!)

Good luck!!

Me again, I want to add to Addie's comments... I always check out the discount bins at stores like Cdn Tire and White Rose (the latter is still discounting last summer's stuff), but also The Bay is a favourite of mine. I just picked up a decorative bug to hang in my yard, 75% off! They have nice things, but when they clear them out, they're sometimes hard to find in the store (the bug was with the Xmas stuff).
